You can set different footer for different reports in rml file. You just need to specify in your rml file in pageTemplate tag header section.

Here is an example,

You can see at the bottom of the page, I have added a dynamic footer. Whoever are employee, chief accountant, CEO the signature of them will appear in footer part.

For that I have done some changes in rml file.

<template pageSize="(595.0,842.0)" title="Test" author="Martin Simon" allowSplitting="20">
    <pageTemplate id="first">
      <frame id="first" x1="57.0" y1="57.0" width="481" height="728"/>
                <setFont name="Helvetica-Bold" size="7"/>
                <drawString x="1.1cm" y="3.3cm">I CONFIRM THE ABOVE SAID THE ABSENT DAYS ARE CORRECT.</drawString>
                <setFont name="Helvetica-Bold" size="7"/>
                <drawString x="1.1cm" y="2.7cm">EMPLOYEE SIGNATURE</drawString>
                <drawString x="1.1cm" y="1.5cm">................................................</drawString>
                <drawString x="8.5cm" y="2.7cm">CHIEF ACCOUNTANT</drawString>
                <drawString x="8.0cm" y="1.5cm">................................................</drawString>
                <drawString x="16.1cm" y="2.7cm">C.E.O.</drawString>
                <drawString x="15.0cm" y="1.5cm">................................................</drawString>

Care to share how to go about? I just get to the point on changing report with open office. Could I change RML file with vi editor in addons/... or I have to export it out from OO then import to make it work?

You can make changes in any RML file you want with any text editor you like. You can refer other RML files of addons too. For better information you can refer this link http://doc.openerp.com/v6.1/developer/05_reports.html.
